Hello Mouse,

Have you tried safe mode? Press F8 after the startup screen and before the windows loading screen.

- Let us know if you can enter safe mode.

Hey Xlphos, thanx for the quick response,

i was able to select safe mode, but the screen is now full with

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\pci.sys

\isapnp.sys etc etc... and it's stuck there

Okay can you tell me where is stops and tell me what is says.

I suggest entering safe mode with command prompt and type chkdsk /r - This will take quite a while, this will repair some errors on disk.

Do you have the XP CD?

the last one is

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\BTHidMgr.sys

i selected safe mode with command prompt but im unable to type anything in.

and nope no cd but im pretty sure i can source one

the only copy i can get ahold of is xp pro and my machine is xp home, would pro be usable or would that be a waste of time?

I don't think they are compatable. You could try it though boot from pro and select repair; I don't know if it will work. If they aren't compatable it should say.

I would get a linux live CD and back up any data you want. If you could get hold of an XP home CD it would be much better, you only need to repair it.

If you can't and if your system specs are quite good you may be able to run windows 7 RC.

Hi Guys,
